BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Officials say a southern Kentucky man is dead after suffering severe burns while trying to load a wood-burning stove.

Warren County deputy coroner John White told the Daily News (http://bit.ly/13O2beD) that 80-year-old Lloyd Bryant of Bowling Green was trying to load the stove outside his home early Sunday when his clothes caught on fire. White says 90% of the man's body was burned.
